It's officially the most wonderful time of the year. Now we know what you're thinking, "slow your roll, it isn't Christmas yet!" And while that may be true, Thanksgiving is officially upon us and therefore, so are the holidays. But, before you can break out the eggnog and mistletoe, this Thursday, it's time to fill your belly with turkey and count the many blessings in your life.

Once you've successfully made the trip home to your family and loved ones, the next item on your to-do list is figuring out what to wear while you eat your turkey. Now, we understand that not all Thanksgiving celebrations are the same. Some may be filled with relatives, home cooking, and extended relatives, while others may be spent in the company of friends in a cozy apartment. No matter where you may be heading though, we obviously want you to look your best, and what better way to start than with the Laudi Vidni Comodo Envelope Clutch- because it's really all about the accessories. Below, three no-fail Thanksgiving looks, for three very different occassions- enjoy! 

And something to note, if you're not a fan of the gold and pink, you can totally customize your clutch any way you want here

At Home

If you're spending your Thanksgiving at home, comfort is truly key. Start your look with a pair of pajama-like (or actually pajama) pants. This makes wobbling from the dinner table to the couch post-dinner super easy. An oversized sweater is ultra cozy, but when paired with structured accessories like a kitten heeled mule and metallic clutch, you can totally take this look out for an after dinner drink, should you need to escape your family reunion for a few minutes.

What To wear to Thanksgiving

Meeting the Parents

As if the holidays aren't stressful enough, it's often a time when you might be faced with meeting your new beaus parents. This could be a make or break situation for both you and your S/O, so you'll want to put your best foot forward. But, with that being said, never sacrifice your own sense of personal style. Opt for a warm colored top in a rich velvet and pair it with a full embellished skirt. You can never go wrong with black, but add some interest to your dark look in the form of lace-up heels and ruffled socks!
